I was reading a book entitled, How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth by Fee and Stuart today and the authors commented on pg. 215 that one could complain to God because the person trusts that God will fix the problem. This is a completely different spin on complaining than I had ever heard.
I always thought that one shouldn’t complain to God because if a person is trusting Him, then no matter the circumstance He is in control of your life. What feels like a grief, a pain, or discomfort should be minutiae compared to your trust in Him. Such minutia is not worth speaking (Hmmm, I need to think about this some more.)
